states, let alone with israel, and more open to iran's message of foreign policy independence. what policy elites here ms., is the islamic republic does not need governments to be more pro-iranian. that's not what they need. they just need these governments to be less pro-american, less pro-israel and more independent. but you often hear in washington in particular that the arab awakening means that iran is going to see. it's only arab allies. or as candidate romney says, evidently without looking at a map, iran's only outlet to the sea. this reflects how it is american elite's, not those sitting in tehran here in denial about basic political trends in the middle east, let alone basic geography. by the islamic republic does not believe that serious bashar al-assad will be overthrown by syrians, the key point is that even a post a sovereign government would not be pro-american or pro-israel. and it may even be less seen on keeping the order with israel quiet. and unless a post assad government were taliban like, serious foreign policy will be just fine for the islamic republic. even

significant difference, on iran, we can expect that both president obama and candidate romney will be focusing a great deal on iran as a threat. their language will be very similar. but the red line they are imposing is very different. for president obama, the red line all along has been the question of preventing iran from obtaining, from getting in a clear weapon. but everybody agrees the u.s., all 16 u.s. intelligence agencies, most of the israeli intelligence and military officials, etc., everybody agrees that is way down the road. but for governor romney, the red line he has claimed and he claimed it again in his speech -- his own foreign-policy speech is that he will rely on the israeli red line, although he did not identify it as that, which is preventing iran from obtaining nuclear weapons capacity, nuclear-weapons capability. that is a whole cuttlefish. that is now. the ability to produce enriched uranium, which any country with a nuclear power program has come including iran, and scientific know-how, which iran has come except for the five scientists that have been assassinated presu

in the interim. i do want to, if i can, just say one thing about the comments about iran, which is also very related to this serious issue. he does set up the strawman about the sanctions on iran and the 20 countries that have gotten off the hook. i think it is interesting to note that this is where the facts really do matter. the iran sanctions act is the critical piece of legislation that the congress passed in the 1990's to punish iran and those who support its petroleum sector. zero companies were sanctioned by the bush administration under the iran sanctions act in eight years. 0. when the president came into office, he very aggressively moved on the sanctions using existing treasury department authorities. he then worked with the congress almost immediately to sign a new comprehensive piece of legislation, of which multiple companies across the world, including chinese companies, including russian companies, have been sanctioned. the 20 exemptions that he likes to talk about were a wholly different piece of authority, which granted the president the authority to exempt countries that m
